An enjoyable and sharply scripted movie that benefits from the charisma of its central players.

December 20, 2019
An oddly specific story to make a movie about with somewhat odd choice of focuses, but it works
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
December 1, 2019
Driven skirts over the facts in order to offer audiences a light-hearted dramedy reminiscent of American Hustle (2013).

It won't have much cinematic impact...but I quite enjoyed it, even though it's spectacularly wiggy.
November 12, 2019
There's a really good story in there, but the makers chose to focus on all the wrong parts.

It all adds up to a fun and entertaining ride.

It's a twisty, crazy story that would be hard to believe if it didn't really happen. British filmmakers Nick Hamm and Colin Bateman never quite make it feel like a California story, but they give the film a terrific disco vibe.

Well-acted and well-made by British director Nick Hamm, although with familiar elements.

Sudeikis, alas, is no Cruise and his screen persona is too lightweight to inject the film with genuine empathy or to make it anything other than a disposable teaser for the deeper, darker DeLorean drama that will inevitably follow.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Unfortunately, the film's jaunty, comedic tone too often backfires, not helped by Sudeikis, who doesn't seem sure whether he is playing for laughs or not.

The comic tone sits rather uneasily with this limited drama, and you wonder if going more blackly comic might have made this more engaging. As it is, this is mildly entertaining but largely forgettable.
November 8, 2019
The film gives Pace a blank canvas on which to deploy more screen presence than everyone else combined, often just by directing a deep gaze in the general direction of the camera.
November 8, 2019
Hamm and writer Colin Bateman are far too soft on everyone involved, presenting the two "heroes" as misguided innocents ensnared in a web of street crime and FBI corruption.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 8, 2019
Screenwriter and novelist Colin Bateman has here scripted a flashy but watchable true-crime thriller in the style of American Made (2017) or Blow (2001).
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
November 7, 2019
Nick Hamm's period biopic attempts to turn this tall-sounding tale into American Hustle on wheels: alas, the results have all the dramatic horsepower of a mobility scooter.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 7, 2019
A crazy enough true story, written well enough to warrant attention, even if it doesn't quite deliver the emotional impact the story promises.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Fans of hilarious hairpieces and outlandish acting are best served by the end result; anyone else can safely give this a miss.

It's like someone got hold of all the wardrobe rejects from 'Boogie Nights' and built a movie around them.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Jason Sudeikis is in the driver's seat throughout this film, not necessarily in a vehicle.He drives the comedy as well as the drama in every scene spouting high speed dialogue.
September 8, 2019
An entertaining true-crime tale told with a wink and a smile.
